I will keep my fingers crossed for you Wolfie. Yes I have already sorted a lot of wiring "issues" and greased the splines, stripped the brakes and re-built them, fixed a broken speedo mount, stripped the locks and got keys, helicoiled stripped threads, fitted indicators, fitted a new stator, serviced the petrol tap, done the earshave, rejetted the carbs including making a brass insert for the stripped slow running jet. It will need new fork seals. Just the rubbish cosmetics to sort after that. I have an old ex-military Landrover that gets Nato Olive drab and black camo paint once a year, the VN may get the same treatment. I have another bike that is black/white/grey urban camo. and that looks not bad. I do like to get to know my vehicles !
One can never have too many alternative forms of transport.
